Henry Hynoski still targeting Week One return


Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but an NFL player is reportedly ahead of schedule in his recovery from an injury.

The player in question this time is Giants fullback Henry Hynoski, who injured the MCL and lateral plateau in his left knee during OTAs. Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that Hynoski is still targeting the first game of the regular season as his return date from surgery to repair the injuries and that he “may even be” a little bit ahead of the timetable for recovery established when Hynoski was initially injured.

The Giants don’t seem to be taking that for granted. They’ve been in contact with and reportedly remain suitors for unsigned free agent fullback Vonta Leach, although the Dolphins are thought to be frontrunners for Leach’s services.

Hynoski is expected to begin weight-bearing exercises in the coming weeks, so there’s still plenty of work to do before pencilling him into any lineups. If he can’t make it by the start of the season and the Giants don’t add any help from outside, Bear Pascoe will likely slide from tight end to fill in for Hynoski.

    Under the current circumstances, don’t you think the headline joke is in poor taste?

    Aiming might have been a better choice of words.

    Tell it like it is..Hynoski, a good football player who doesn’t punch police officers, or kill people, is aiming for a week one return!

    Bear Pascoe and Henry “Hynoceros” Hynoski are a couple of the best football names out there.

    Hynoskis TD celebration against eagles last game of season was great. Sent Reid off with a beatdown.

    Henry will be back..stronger than ever! No matter what we all call him he is “Hynocerous” many times over. Have no doubt about it! Go Henry!
